I’m having a friend with the name Chris. First thing, I’m not religious at all. Secondly, it’s annoying and offending me that whenever I start typing his name, autocorrect, auto completion does suggest Christ and Christmas. Additionally I think it’s offensive to other religious groups to force Christ and Christmas on them while contacting someone with the name Chris. People may happily believe in any Gods in their fever dreams, I don’t bother them. But offensive religious words shouldn’t be forced upon users of electronic devices.
 
I might be wrong but i think you can remove words from auto correct, so it doesn't suggest them in the future.
 
Not sure what device the OP is using but if its Android based all you have to do is hold your finger down on the offensive word in the prediction bar and a menu will come up including an option to remove the word from the dictionary.
 
OMFG Someone is offended by some words that describe something that doesn’t exist. Jeez get a grip.

Annoyed for the wrong auto correct, sure, and as described above you can easily change that, or reset it. But those words will remain when you type Chris as they are entirely normal inoffensive words used all around the world. Although I’ve just tried it, and it doesn’t try to correct it. It just offers them for auto completion purposes. So you can happily ignore without a further thought.

So the solution is to type faster 👌👍
 
My Wife worked for a guy whos surname is Christmas, I'm sure he'll be glad his name is considered offensive.
 
Could be worse. My Whatsapp autocorrected the word 'bit' to 'bitty' the other day.

Which was nice.

If you haven't watched Little Britain, then a) you won't get the reference and b) may I recommend you do watch it before that gets banned too (if it hasn't already).

My OH hates that word :D
 
Everytime I type BAME it autocorrects to BLAME..

Go figure.
 
 
‘I’m having a friend with the name Chris’.......

Poor Chris
Poor Chris indeed, I sent him a text Dear Christ and as a devout Muslim he wasn’t too impressed. And as I was starting to type Muslim, I got the autocomplete suggestion Muslin. So Apple products are for Christians only it seems.

Android only which I wouldn’t use.

Oh don’t be ridiculous. Or would you prefer to live in a redacted world?

Even the Qur’an mentions it.

Are you going through a difficult period or something? These may help to have a chat.
